Family business - capture full returns on working hard


It can be tough working with family, but family will always be there. The firm will cut you loose the first bad quarter you get.


I'd join the family business if it was something cool like scuba diving or my dad was Bill Gates or some shit


I would never work with family


@A1 it’s sort of a now or never since my dad who’s the owner is getting older (mid 60s)... I’d like to work a few more years to gain enough experience to lead the family business, but worried and want to help dad in the same time


I’m sure most answers you’ll will be “it depends”. From my perspective, I could never work for my mother. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Does the option for #2 expire (ie is this a now or never decision)? If not, stay status quo since feedback from an app probably shouldn’t sway a career so far

Also i don’t have an mba so thinking if i’m gonna get one for the family business i’d better start applying now

I'm going to preface this with I am not trying to start a racial conversation here. Just have some questions for when I start dating again. I'm a South Asian woman, and have only dated South Asian men, but I would like to start diversifying. I have tried to before, but it seems like when I got on apps like bumble I really only matched with my race and not any others even if I swiped right on others. Can any non South Asian males provide some insight? Do you date South Asian women?


How exactly does the HSA work? I know there’s triple tax savings but still not sure what its purpose is and how to use it for max benefits. A small amount gets deducted from my paycheck every two weeks and my employer contributes to it, I also see a $1 “fee distribution” charge every month. Is it basically like a 401k for health? Should I use it when I make a doctors visit? Or should I be saving up for bigger surgeries in the future? 23 relatively you and healthy female for reference
